If we consider a transition to a circular economy, it is very easy to feel overwhelmed at the scale of the task ahead of us, It would be easy to feel a sense of paralysis, where we ‘cannot see the wood for the trees’.
However, there are steps we can take immediately that will have a big impact on our sustainable footprint and, if we all did a little, it would add up to a lot.
The LIA and Recolight are pleased to announce the Net Zero Lighting 2024 conference, which will take place on 2nd May in London. The conference will focus on the practical steps that lighting manufacturers can take to reduce the carbon emissions of all parts of their operations, to contribute to the low carbon economy. The two organisations have come together to organise the conference in recognition of the vital importance of the topic to our industry, drawing upon both organisations’ expertise.
Organised by Recolight, the industry’s leading environmental compliance authority the event is part of the lighting industry’s journey to a low carbon, circular economy.
Transformation to a Circular Economy is an essential requirement for manufacturing businesses. This will become ever more important as demand for resources rises, and energy costs increase.
Recolight Circular Economy webinars have been attended by lighting manufacturers, users, designers, specifiers, distributors, and contractors – the whole supply chain.
It has been encouraging to see both the appetite for more information, and the very practical issues that have been raised by our presenters and discussed by the panellists. The understanding of how our industry can really become sustainable is evolving – and that needs change right across the supply chain.
Recolight are encouraged to see the lighting industry taking steps to become more sustainable. It is a given that we produce light sources that are very energy efficient. Moving beyond that and adopting Circular Economy principles in how we manufacture those products will soon be a ‘must do’, and not just an ‘ought to do’.
Replays of all webinars are available on the Events page
